Urological Conditions Treated Robotically
There are many conditions that may affect your urologic system such as prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and benign conditions such as UPJ obstruction and vesicoureteral reflux, which is an abnormal flow of urine from the bladder into the ureters or kidneys.
When lifestyle changes, medication and non-surgical treatments can’t treat urologic conditions, your physician might suggest da Vinci surgery, which is a minimally invasive approach that uses the latest in surgical and robotic technologies to perform complex procedures.
Some treatment options for common urologic conditions include:
- da Vinci Pyeloplasty – for kidney obstruction
- da Vinci Partial Nephrectomy – for kidney cancer
- da Vinci Nephrectomy – for kidney cancer
- da Vinci Radical Prostatectomy – for prostate cancer
All treatment options for urologic cancers depend on the stage of cancer.
